A stodgy drama with Pat O'Brien as a washed up reporter who turns up at his ex-boss's house to scrounge money in order to send his son to Switzerland for an operation on his eye, only to find his prospective benefactor dead on the floor. O'Brien knows who committed the crime so he offers to take the rap in exchange for the money he needs.
It's a decent set-up but the movie plods griplessly through its plot in a straight line, with no surprises, twists or turns to be found, although the writers seem to think they included them. The acting's pretty wooden and while the movie dresses up as a hard-boiled American thriller the mix of dodgy accents really doesn't work.
Look out for what may possibly be the worst screen kiss in the history of cinema.
